De Havilland to Promote Dash 8-400

: Feb 7, 2020 - : 2:00 pm

De Havilland Aircraft of Canada Limited (De Havilland Canada) will display a Dash 8-400 Regional Transport Aircraft (RTA) belonging to PAL Express at the air show.

Philippine Airlines had brought a dual-class 86-seat Q400 to the previous edition of the show. PAL Express’ Dash 8-400 will fly through seven countries en-route to its final destination, Singapore.

The aircraft took off from Toronto and made its first stop in Labrador, Canada. The Dash 8-400 is the only turboprop in its class certified for high altitude airports. The RTA delivers 30 per cent less fuel burn than competing jets, while cruising 160 km/h faster than conventional turbo- props.

The Dash 8-400 fleet globally has logged almost seven million flight hours with operators in almost 40 countries and a dispatch reliability rate of over 99.5 per cent. Longview Aviation Capital, which acquired the Dash 8 aircraft programme from Bombardier has relaunched the aircraft under the De Havilland Canada brand.
